The growth of the life insurance products has been further boosted by the entry of private players following the deregulation of the industry in 2000. They have contributed a lot to the industry by introducing new distribution channels (such as bancassurance) and strategies to the industry. The rising demand for retirement provision in the ageing population along with efforts of governments to move from public to private pension schemes has also led to rapid growth.
Filliped by the above factors, the report predicts the life insurance market to swell at a CAGR of over 200% during 2006-2009, thus leaving the non-life insurance market behind.
